Top Ten Tuesday: Our Bookish Bucket List


top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.

 Today’s Topic: Top Ten Things On Our Bookish Bucket List

Here’s hoping we get to these! *fingers crossed*


1. Read a bunch of classics I have never read

This is on both Kellee’s and my lists. I feel like it is on most readers’ lists.

2. Not get mad at myself for not reading every hyped book of the year

This is more of a wishful thought. I am not sure if I can do it!

3. Organize my bookshelves. 

Three are color-coded and look like a rainbow. One is not… It looks awkward. But I’d rather be reading!

4. Read all of the books on my son’s bookshelf.

We are working our way through them, but I have so many favorites that I read over and over again!

5. Take a reading vacation. Just sit and read—no distractions—for seven days.

I am sure this will happen very soon with a four-month-old.


1. Read a bunch of classics I have never read

There are so many classics I haven’t read (Catch 22Lord of the FliesCantebury Tales, etc.) and want to at some point.

2. Continue to read at least 200 books a year

I think this won’t be a problem, but we’ll see how motherhood changes my view.

3. Get back to 100 novels a year

This one will be harder, I’m sure, but I want to try.

4. Finish the series that I have started

This was my book gap challenge last year and I miserably failed, so I have just put it on my bucket list–I’ll get to them eventually I’m sure!

5. Continue keeping up with what my students like and what they may like to read

This is something I am known for at my school and I never want to lose it!

What is on your bookish bucket list?

  1. I love the idea, but am not sure I need more bookish goals. One thing I’ve been regretting, so maybe that will be my “bookish goal” is that I’ve pulled away from reading adult books. I need to return, at least one a month! Thanks for the “nudge”!

    • I’ve felt that way before when it comes to adult books, too 🙂 There’s just SO many good books out there and not enough time in our lives.
      Good luck with your goal!
